I can’t believe we are finally here, we officially did it, we crossed the finish line. Here’s all the ways I am grateful and the one thing I want to take away from the last 8 months.
Catching you up on our life lately, Ryan’s status, and with a few other snapshots of our life recently.
We snapped this blurry photo as soon as we walked out of the treatment center. I never want to forget the happy tears and those red noses. Here’s the latest update on Ryan!
I’m so excited to finally share the podcast Ryan and I recorded back in February with The Knot! Truth be told, I’ve been kinda-sorta holding my breath waiting for this podcast to go live, because…
